The company I work for currently services 13 School districts who all authenticate through different active directories to our SharePoint 2010 site. We are currently looking for a way to switch the user interface for logging in. I was wondering if there is anyway of changing the Windows Authentication dialog box, to look like a form, without using forms or claims based authentication. We are also trying to avoid using mixed authentication. So I was wondering, is there any way to change the look and feel of how users log in without switching the authentication type from windows authentication.

No, the only way to do this is via Forms Authentication using Active Directory as the authentication source.
